148-Coffee Painting Workshop

Did you know, coffee can awaken your creative senses as well? It's true! Coffee can be used as a painting medium which gives out these really wonderful sepia tones to render your art in while also taking in the coffee aroma as you work. Using a lot of techniques similar to watercolors, from creating transparency to blending to bringing out the details, explore and learn a fun new way of painting. Who knows, this might become your daily dose of creativity! Perfect for beginners, hobbyists and enthusiasts. Participants are welcome to come in with options for reference images that they'd like to draw and paint. We will also have references ready that you can choose from. As a bonus, connect with fellow participants who share your passion for art and coffee. An excellent opportunity to unwind, socialize and make new friends in a cozy and inspiring environment.
